right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's sincerity. congressman paul ryan, who we just heard from, expressed doubts that the president's recent comment that the america is not in an immediate debt crisis. ryan contends america is teetering on the edge of a crisis and it will have serious repercussions. >> you know who gets first hurt in the debt crisis, the poor and elderly. that is what we're trying to prevent from happening. pro-growth economic policies to get people working to bring in more revenue and get the entitlement system under control so it doesn't go bankrupt so people can seriously plan for the promises government made for them in reirrel

and senate to overhaul u.s. immigration laws. today speaker of the house john boehner called the house version a "pretty reasonable solution." the number of americans dying from alzheimer's disease has increased by 68% in the last decade. according to the alzheimer's association, one in three seniors have some form of dementia when they die, and the disease accelerates the progression of other life- threatening conditions. because alzheimer's has no cure or treatment to slow symptoms, a growing elderly population means dementia mortality rates will only continue to rise. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to gwen. >> ifill: pope francis formally took office today with a special mass and ceremonies. we begin with a report from james mates of independent television news in rome. >> it was among the ordinary pilgrims to st. peter's that pope francis started his day. it is common now for a pope to kiss babies-- less so for them to get out of the popemobile and walk over to give a blessing to a disabled person. inauguration mass at st. peter's square was less or nate than
that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >> ezra klein gets the last word. >>> "the ed show" is next. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched aga
breakout. john berman has that. >> this is nuts. canadian police arrested two inmates who used a hijacked helicopter to pull off a daring prison escape. police say the inmates 36-year-old benjamin hudon-barbeau and 33-year-old danny provencal climbed a ladder dangling from the chopper. they were whisked away from this maximum security facility outside montreal. the first inmate and two unidentified suspects were apprehended really quickly. the second inmate surrendered peacefully overnight. so it's weird but over. >>> a vigil on the campus of seton hill university near pittsburgh after a deadly bus crash. the woman's lacrosse team bus skidded off the pennsylvania turnpike saturday, smashed into a tree. the bus driver and the coach of the lacrosse team who was six months pregnant were killed. there was some rain, there was some snow on the road but police have not released an official cause of the crash. >>> in a very public display of republican soul searching, the rnc is set to release an internal review of the 2012 election, what many people are calling an autopsy report. it includes so
. ill h'll be honest, i was surprised when john boehner said he trusted obama. he has been duplicitous and trying to get boehner fired. why would he say he trusts him? >> there are a lot of things we believe in and shouldn't give up on and some of the things i was talking about, i think, attracts people from both the left and right and that's supporting your right to trial by jury, your right to be innocent until proven guilty, these are such time-honored concepts that i think it allows the republican party to get bigger, but our young people want us to stand for something, really stand on principle and i think that's why the filibuster probably helped me to gain enough votes to win in the poll. >> sean: do you identify yourself as more a libertarian conservative? people ask me, i'm a registered conservative in new york, i consider myself a reagan conservative. how do you -- is libertarian fair or-- do you embrace it, what? >> it depends what people mean by it. i use the term constitutional conservative, but libertarian conservative. one reason why i think that conservative has to be m
. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene traveling with the president in jerusalem. they're investigating but there is no firm evidence yet that the syrians have used chemical weapons. >> that was the fascinating exchange when the issue came up, wolf. you know well all the intelligence assets that are here. israel, the neighbor to the northeast is syria. they've been helping the united states. there are satellite images. there are drones flying over syria from israel and other places in the region. and there are different ways they can test if chemical weapons were used. sensors they put in the air to test. so there is no question there is an intelligence investigation under way. so the president made clear again that would be a game changer but he said he is waiting for the facts. he didn't say what he would do, if there is conclusive evidence he wasn't clear. it would be a game changer but what next? white house officials say that is one reason they're going to be very, very careful, gather the facts, so they can talk about what the president would do if this work
supporting corporate welfare. and then the next day john boehner says, uh-uh. we are not going to close those loopholes on oil companies or hedge fund managers or people who park their profits overseas. we are going to give them all of the corporate welfare that will we can. i have to tell you. i think it's a good report. i don't think the republican party is going to pay any attention to it. and i think unless the republican party changes, i think we could see the republican party out of the running and a third party taking over and the republican party being in the dust bin of history mark my words, they pay attention to this romped, they change their policies, not just their delivery or they go in the dust bin of history. that's my take away from this g.o.p. report. do you think they will change? 866-55-press. do you think they are big enough to change? do you think they realize how out of touch they are with american people? give us a call. let's talk about it. >> this is "the bill press show."

by aiding secular forces. secretary of state john kerry has urged iraq to take action to stop iranian flights carrying arms to the al-assad regime to iraqi airspace. john kerry made the comments during a surprise visit to baghdad where he met with iraqi prime minister of maliki. >> i made it very clear that for those of us who are engaged in an effort to see president al- assad step down and to see a democratic process take hold with the transitional government according to the geneva communicate, those of us engaged in that effort, anything that supports president al-assad is problematic. and i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran are in fact helping to sustain president al-assad. and his regime. >> syriza's man opposition leader has announced his resignation in the latest sign of deep divisions among those fighting president a sad. moaz thank you said he was quitting as president of the syrian national coalition -- he had faced criticism from his own ranks for offering to negotiate with assad. and a further sign of turmoil among anti-government gro
sort of vacillated between trying to figure out allegiances. here's what john sununu had to say about all of that on sean hannity. >> bill clinton went about trying to deal with the middle east question in a way that really began to make some progress. there was a balanced perspective. this president is clumsy. he says one thing on monday, changes his mind on tuesday and says a different thing on wednesday. and he doesn't understand that what that does is create a lack of trust. in foreign policy, the one thing i learned working with george herbert walker bush is that the most important thing in the world is for people to trust america and to have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. >>steve: it is curious, because if you're just watching -- if you saw the president with netanyahu yesterday, you would think they're getting along great. in the past, for all intents and purposes, it seemed like they hated each other. the fact that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't
. in our next hour ambassador john bolton and ambassador nick burns will join us on the developing crisis in the country that means a lot for us and our relations in this region of the world. tens of thousands reported a suspicious flash of light spotted streaking across the night sky from florida to massachusetts. and so, what was it? trace gallagher, do you know? >> reporter: yeah, i know. i'm not going to tell you. no, it was actually a meteor, it was like this wide. now, remember, scientists say most of us will go our entire life without seeing a meteor. it seems like everyone saw this one, right? at eight o'clock friday night streaked across the eastern sky. by ten o'clock the american meteor society, nasa, several weather channels had gotten thousands of calls from nine different states, including canada, and as far inland asoo reporting this as a very bright star with a long green tail. meteors are normally the size of small pebbles. one the size of a softball can kind of light up like the full moon. this one, they believe, was a little more than a yard wide, which is why it lit up
minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to bethlehem. instead he had to motorcade there. it's that type of windy day here. i say that because we coul

's really hard, but i bet in the end they get 60 votes. the key question whether john boehner will bring a bill to the house. >> i am confident that john boehner will bring that bill and i'm feeling optimistic we have come too far right now with labor and business arguing about defense and we just can't have a 95% agreement get sabotaged over that. and 13 years is too long. the path for citizenship cannot take 13 years. it is not right for those people who have been living in this country and working hard and playing by the rules. >> that's a discussion we could have in the comfort of a cnn studio when we're all senators. >> kamala harris, ron brownstein, ana navarro, thank you. >>> head for our popular online segment called getting to know. this week you'll get to know more about california ag kamala harris. fareed zakaria "gps" is next. >>> this is "gps global public square." welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. a great show for you today. first up, the question for the economy. should we save or should we spend? what will get the economy

, again, particularly these democratic senators are up for re-election. john boehner has basically said in the house, you know, we're going to sit back and watch and see what comes out of the senate. so it is a very, you know, bad use of a word, but sort of a targeted issue here. you know, i just am not entirely sure that mayor bloomberg's money is going to have the kind of impact in those areas it would have to have. >> i want to bring in congressman charles rangel. always good to have you on the program. good morning. >> good to be back. good morning. >> you're a proponent of many of these new laws. what happened to people in your corner? i mean, things seemed so promising after newtown and now the senate democrats, harry reid said, look, it's just a pragmatic decision, can barely get 40 votes for an assault weapons ban, let alone 60. what happened? >> i'm ashamed to admit it, but it's politics and it's money. the national rifle association has taken this position. there's no reason, there's no foundation, there's no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of
is overheard saying. a cnn exclusive. jake tapper sat down with the house speaker john boehner and specifically asked the speaker about what the president was overheard saying. >> president obama arrived in israel today, he had some interesting comments for prime minister netanyahu on the tarmac. he said it is good to get away from congress. netanyahu laughed and said, believe me, i know. any reaction? >> so much for the charm offensive. >> but does a comment like that have any impact, you think? >> no, not really. president is meeting with the president of israel, he's got his legislative issues, the president has got his. comes with the territory. >> comes with the territory. >> i would rather be heckled than ignored or as i like to say, you only tease the ones you love. >> takes the full interview with the speaker, coming up for our north american viewers with "the lead" at 4:00 p.m. eastern. a lot of us remember some of the tense moments during the first four years, especially that meeting they had in the oval office when the prime minister seemed to be lecturing the president. there was an
to be here again. secretary of state john kerry is in the middle east. he is urging iraq to stop letting iran use its airspace to shuttle weapons and soldiers to the syrian government >> for those of us engaged in the effort to see president assad step down and a see a democratic process take hold with a transitional government government according to the geneva communique, for those of us engaged in that effort, anything that supports president assad is problematic. bill: so iran claims the flights contain humanitarian supplies. conor powell in the middle east bureau in jerusalem. first of all who is behind the car bomb, the car bomb hit on the rebel commander? >> reporter: so often is the case, bill, really tough to get accurate information coming out of syria. but it is not clear if it was the syrian regime that launched this assassination attempt or if it was sort of opposition rebel fact -- faction that may have launched attack on the colonel of the he is reportedly in stable condition in turkey after the attack. he was one of the original founders of the free syrian army. it has been so
steps down and takes full responsibility. john madden football game was-- it's 18 on ea. a different story at ebay, chief john donahue's salary about doubled, 30 million after the stock gained 70%, a lot of that thanks to paypal of course, and we have ebay up at 51. and nicole, boeing got a big order for 787 discount ryanair. when i say discount, i mean deep, deep, deep, deep discount. what's the stock? >> up arrow there, you can see it right now, 85.79 for boeing, 15.6 billion dollar deal for these passenger jets from boeing, 175 people passenger jets. this is obviously a deal that they just announced and low cost carrier of course, ryanair is, it's a big deal for boeing and that's why you're seeing an up arrow. by the way, the market, i was looking to see where it was. stuart: ryanair is the organization that removed two bathrooms from the back of the plane so they could put in more seats and make more profit. nicole: i did not know that. stuart: and then they charge you for a bathroom visit and charge you for some water and charge you for hand luggage, but they're wildly profitabl
we see. particularly in the senate, obviously. but even in the house. i think the speaker john boehner himself could make a deal with president obama that would include raising taxes. he would do that. the reason he won't do that, is he's afraid of being yellowstone thrown by eric cantor and kevin mccarthy and the tea party caucus and the problem is the republicans who sort of see sense on the budget, or could see sense on the budget, are held back by their own fear of their own radicals. >> what's amazing to me is that, joy, we talked about ryan budget, 2.0, now this is 3.0. there is this effort under way to rebrand the republican party that has been met with varying levels of success. >> right. >> and now they're talking about this as a way of preserving the social safety net. and i always, when i hear that, it's like -- you kind of have to be kidding, right? you may have a different fiscal goals, but don't tell me this is a way of preserving the social safety net. >> it's so funny you say that because i was thinking that i'm remembering the pretty thing sent up with all the
speaker john boehner reacts in our exclusive interview. >>> also in national the cdc now says one in every 50 children has autism. one in 50. there are real questions being raised at how the cdc arrived at these numbers. >>> and the sports lead. how long has it been since the miami heat lost a game? well, back then most of us had not even heard of the harlem shake. good time. >>> we begin with the world lead. and finally, all sides of the middle east peace conflict are seeing eye to eye on something. none of them expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with legendary limited affection from one another. >> i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their warmth and hospitality. it was wonderful to see them. they are -- i did inform the prime minister that they are very good looking young men who clearly got their looks from their m
, that was house speaker john boehner talking yesterday about a new effort to get to the bottom of what happened in benghazi, libya. more than six months after the terror attacks left our ambassador and three other americans dead and frustration is growing on capitol hill. as republicans accuse the white house of keeping the information under wraps and calls for access to the survivors are met by silence. kt mcfarland joins us via skype. >> hi, ali. >> alisyn: john boehner calls the disparity group of lawmakers into a room and what questions do they need answered? >> you have more and more questions every day the story goes on. we all know that somebody messed up big time before the benghazi attack, and we still don't have any answers as to why the requests for additional security were deni denied. and we don't know requests while the attack was on going. who was available, why did they not make it available to them. we didn't know how long the attack would go on. this doesn't work. at the beginning of the attack usually all hands on deck, everyone should try to do whatever they can to help the
members of his party including house speaker john boehner who is ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think, by the way, there is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional rveevenues. that means closing loopholes and arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january the 1st. the talk about raising revenue is over. it's time to deal with the spending problem. >> of course, the speaker is going to say that, but speaker has to say, as he is the leader of the republican house. this weekend confirmed what i said last week. a lot of people are saying no deal is in the works. they are moving closer together. the key point out of the john boehner interview was he was asked whether he could trust the president and his

woman. so i guess john boehner is now opposed to divorce. according to the "washington post" polling and historic high of 58% of americans believe same-sex marriage should be legal, but only 34% of republicans believe same-sex marriage should be legal. today politico published an informal survey of republicans when asked if his views had changed on same-sex marriage, retiring republican senator saxby chambliss said, "i'm not gay." which many of us had actually suspected already. senator lindsey graham resisted the saxby chambliss urge to reveal his sexual preference and instead said "i'm with south carolina. i believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman." the divorce rate, of course, in south carolina is zero. senator rand paul violated his libertarian principles in saying, "i believe in traditional, historic and the religious nature of marriage. marriage should remain a state issue." chris christie said something incomprehensible to the "new jersey star ledger." asked about ohio senator rod portman's decision this week to support same-sex marriage after his son reveale
the senate would then have to go over to the house and we're not sure what john boehner would do at this point in time. yesterday he indicated that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. they give the capacit
and the looming debt crisis. here is john boehner and paul ryan just this weekend. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> america is still a step ahead of european and japan. partly because of our resilient economy and our world currency status. >> michael: there you have it. but it turns out americans saw right through it. a poll out today from the hill shows while americans might be sympathetic to republican's ideas about lowering taxes they still trust the president to handle the economy. 65% said u.s. budget deficit should be reduced by cutting spending. but 35% said they trust the democrats more. so to regain the public's trust they have done an autopsy of the 2012 campaign. the rorpt has a lot of style but not a lot of serious substance. in it the word messaging appears 77 times technology in there 42 times, and then there is the long list of things that got no mention at also. health care inequality and others. the plan also pointed to some other issues, and no bashing poor people at all. the plan says low-income americans are hardworking people who

to portray me as. we don't have a debt problem right now. he said this guy against him john boehner, but i just want to play something kind of indecreed thabl happened over the weekend. here is the president and here is john boehner. >> we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> he just seed the moral high ground there? >> that is fairly amazing. by the way, democrats will be running that for a while now. i think it goes to the point where most americans are actually focused on jobs and economy, erin. they're not focused on the debt. i think you have that captive sort of republican grass root that is focused on the debt and trimming back federal government. and they've captured the s of republican party. but the vast majority of americans are more focused on the economy and creating jobs and building stable middle class than they are on cutting the deficit. yeah, the deficit is an issue. it's not the number one issue. >> why, boehner do that? we don't have an immediate debt crisis. you would see that in the market, right? so baner er
